Make a holiday rental home or accommodation in County Clare, Ireland your home away from home

County Clare is a simply amazing place to be. The rugged Atlantic Coastline, marked by the stunning Cliffs of Moher which plummet 700m into the ocean, is a walker’s paradise, and cannot fail to inspire, however many times you make the journey. County Clare, Ireland, is a wonderful destination for those who want to get into the great outdoors, explore the wonderfully friendly little rural villages and fine traditional cultures of rural Ireland. As you may be able to tell, a County Clare cottage is my personal idea of heaven!

Things to do in County Clare, Ireland

The Clare countryside is some of the most remarkable and varied scenery you can find in Ireland. Walking is an absolute delight, and there are amazing sights to be seen in every direction of the compass. The stunning coastline withholds many hidden gems, from great swimming spots to the local dolphin which lives off the coast of Liscannor. Inland, the open expanses of green fields separated by iconic stone walls quickly change to limestone karsts, and the alien scenery of the Burren, a rocky landscape of caves, rare alpine fauna and underground streams. Many walks will take you by unexpected archaeological sites dating as far back as 5,000 years. Almost the finest part of walking from a County Clare cottage is the satisfaction of warming up in front of an open fire in one of Clare’s pubs with a pint, talking to the ever hospitable locals.

golf is a very important game in County Clare, Ireland. There are many magnificent championship courses around, including the delightful links course in Lahinch. There are many courses available to play from a County Clare holiday rental, as well as plenty of 9 hole courses and pitch and putt games to enjoy from County Clare accommodation.

Sailing, windsurfing and surfing also thrive in County Clare. Accommodation on the coastline is wonderful for allowing you to pick and choose when to head to the beach, board in hand and attempt to conquer the Atlantic swells which crash onto the sand. Many of the beaches are beautifully flat, meaning that not only can you swim and paddle a long way out (taking care of currents signalled by a system of flags on the beach), but the beaches themselves are host to games of football and hurling throughout the year.

If you are lucky enough to be staying in a County Clare cottage during the Gaelic Games season, it is well worth going to see a game. Although Gaelic football and hurling may be completely alien to English visitors, they provide an excellent spectacle and you will get caught up with the crowds.

Equestrian sports are hugely popular in County Clare too, and if you are hoping to take a riding holiday from County Clare accommodation, you will be spoilt for choice.

Weather in County Clare, Ireland

With a very temperate climate, County Clare has one of the longest growing seasons in Ireland. Average monthly temperatures range from 6˚C in January to 15˚C in July. Rain is not uncommon, so it is a good idea to pack a jacket when you pack for your accommodation in County Clare.

Perfect location and beautiful area.

5 of 5
The wife and I have had a great stay here,the home we had for the week is very modern,clean and great value for money.A few personal items are in this home which I found odd but I suppose just adds to the idea that their home is your home.Anthony was very kind when we got there as we hit a slight delay and didn’t arrive till 10.30pm and he made sure we could have a hot drink before bed and when we got up.You are exactly one mile from the local shops we’re you can get everything and the only bar unless you go into Ennis which is a couple of miles further but the Grove bar will sell you a large white wine spritzer and a Guinness for 9 Euro (£7.89) which is cheaper than we’re I live in England.Over all its been a great stay for us with no negatives at all.Thank you Angela and Anthony for allowing us to share your beautiful place and all the best to you both. Paul and Karen Healy

Very spacious and well maintained property.

4 of 5
Despite the rain we had a lovely stay here and the house was a good base for us to visit western Clare. It was a very clean and well thought out property but a bit lacking in any of those finishing touches that make it feel like a holiday home such as a few nice pictures, basic provisions like milk and a few tea bags when you arrive and a welcome pack of information. These are simple things that set you off feeling really welcome. It had no wifi either which might be an attraction for some but we wanted to search for good places to eat and visit locally. Although it is close to the sea the cottage is on the main coast road some distance in land which can be busy at times and has no footpath so you really have to drive every time you leave the house. It would have been great to be able to walk up to the hotel up the road. So although it wasn't quite what we were after, it was great for a few days and I still rate it highly and would recommend it to others.
